As featured in BBC One's - "GLORIOUS GARDENS FROM ABOVE" featuring Bodysgallen's award-winning gardens


One of the Ten best UK hotels with gardens - The Independent, Aug 2015

Bodysgallen is surrounded by over 200 acres of its own parkland and beautiful gardens -- both manicured and wild.

The gardens have been recognised for their award winning restoration. Featured within the estate's grounds are a rare 17th century parterre of box hedges filled with sweet-scented herbs, naturally occurring limestone outcrops, a rockery with a cascade, a walled garden, lily-pad ponds, and several follies.  The gardens also include a formal rose garden and a number of well-established and interesting trees and shrubs including medlar and mulberry, which add further dimension to the gardens.

Various springs traverse the parklands, and there are several woodland walks such as the Terrace Walk, the Ladies Walk, the Eastern Covert Walk or the Pydew Village Walk that lead to a Gothic Tower and the obelisk located on top of Pydew mountain.
